    Election of Chair- Pali Sen was nominated to serve another year as chair of the committee and her election was unanimous.

     

    Appointment of Secretary- Lauren Newton was appointed secretary. 

     

    Pali distributed trend data for oncoming freshmen for the last 10 years with an average GPA (3-4) and actual enrollment at UNF. The trend is that while the freshman profile is increasing GPA, enrollment is dropping. Pali posed the question: What is the end game? The committee chose to tackle this issue over the coming year: recruitment and retention of FTIC. We decided to invite Dr. Judith Miller, Executive Director of Institutional Research and Assessment to the October meeting to discuss the situation and gather data. Paul will distribute senior surveys from Engineering majors to SPC members as Engineering is already asking some of these questions.
